i love reading blogs. i am always hunting for more to read. i stick mainly with fashion and lifestyle blogs, but i like to think i have a wide berth of blogs that i read on an (almost) daily basis. i love looking at how people dress every day, and how they do their hair, and i get inspired by these looks, but that isn't the main reason i read blogs. i love to get small glimpses into people's lives. does that make me sound like a stalker? maybe. but i do. i love reading stories of things that happened to you, funny things your kids/cats/dogs/husbands/insert funny person here did. i feel like i am friends with the people who write the blogs i read. again, maybe that's a little weird, but i also think that if we all met in real life, we'd be fabulous friends.
i also like to write about my life. it might not be the most interesting of lives, but i happen to love it. i think there is something funny that happens to me at least once a day. and before the blog, i was left to my own devices on how i shared that funny story. usually it was via facebook or email or a phone call. now i have the chance to share my stupid stories with all of you. i hope you like them, but i also realize that not all of you actually read what i'm writing. and that's fine.
i will admit that there are days where i don't have as much time, and i skim through blogs without reading every word. but i try, because i know you took the time to post it, so i want to take the time to read it. i always find it odd when someone blogs about something sad that happened in their life, and then i see a comment at the bottom that says something like, "nice dress. follow me?" clearly that person didn't read the post. but you can't really get mad about it...i mean, it's a blog, people can read it, not read it, just look at pictures, or do whatever they want with it.
so i'm not here to judge you based on your comments or based on why you read a blog. i am just curious...why do you read a certain blog? do you prefer content, do you prefer outfits, do you want to learn something, do you hate them so much that you read their blog just to find something wrong with them (i know it happens...there are other blogs based on that)? or all of the above?
of course nora and i hope that you come here because we are real, because we are funny and silly and not perfect, and because we like to share our lives with you. but you know what, if you just come here because you like the way we dress, that's ok too. i never got mad at anyone for liking my style!
in the comments below, i would love to hear why you read certain blogs. and if you have a favorite blog to share, leave that in the comments, too!
have a great day!
